    This is the first time I have burned an audio cd from my library with wmp 10.
    I don't like it. My first try came out blank, there was nothing copied to
    the cd. Not sure what I did wrong. Now I can't get the burn list to copy to
    the cd in the order I have arranged! Why? I have one song I really love,
    but for some reason it has lots of dead space (if that is what its called)
    before finally there is a drum that thumps for a few seconds, because of that
    I want that particular song last. But wmp won't let me! Hope someone can
    help. Thanks!

    A: The 'dead space' is due to how Redbook audio CDs work (vs Extended
    Redbook), IIRC. Sorry, WMP doesn't support gaplessness. Use Nero if you
    want that.
    B: It'll burn in the established playlist order, if you're burning an audio
    CD. What order do you get?

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)
    See http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.
    Following up to your post with the resolution is good netiquette.

    What about burning a WMA HighMat format disc? I wan to burn 10 or more
    albums or CDs that have been ripped to my library, and I cannot get it to
    burn the songs in the order that matches the original album/CD order and as
    they are shown on the "burn" list. It orders the song first by track number
    (i.e., all the no. "1" songs first, in alphabetical order; followed by all
    the no. "2" songs in alphabetical order, etc). Surely there has to be a way
    to order by song number for each individual album/CD, or at least as a
    minimum group all of the songs by original album/CD if you can't order them
    by proper sequence for the album. Otherwise, I'm going to have to find a new
    media software!

    thanks for any help or advice,

  4. Easy to burn but the playback order is only going to work on
    HighMat-comaptible hardware.

    I wan to burn 10 or more
    Yes, it's basically like a big floppy disc.
    You have to do it manually for regular data CDs. WMP is not going to help.

    Thanks for the info Mike.

    I have an audio player in one of my vehicles that will play mp3, WMA, etc,
    type files; and I have one or more DVD players that are also supposed to play
    those type of files. Tried the disc in the automobile player and it played
    fine, but then I realized from the very first song that it wasn't playing any
    of the songs in the order that it should.

    Good to know trying to use WMP is a waste of time. I'll try Roxio or some
    other brand media software. Any recommendations?
